Back to Scouts on Friday to finish off the Communicators badges



We did Morse code and Phonetics, we also looked at various countries call signs, how radio's worked an some Q-Codes.  Laptop was used to allow the Scouts to listen via WEBSDR to various stations and log their 25 contacts.


Simple Morse code buzzer made from a micro switch, buzzer and battery, cased in tobacco tin.
Parts available from Maplins and per typical Hams Bob M6FLT and James M0JFP built them on a Pub Table the night before.
